    We have allowed for $500 a week between us after the rest of our money is used to pay bills, groceries, mortgage, savings, trust accounts, everything except for swimming lessons and my PT which has to be paid in cash and they both come out of our allowance.

    Is that for you and the kids? I'm guessing from your post it is but I just wanted to check.

    Ok I feel a bit of a scrooge now seems hubbies proposal is quiet acceptable though I'm not exactly sure I can allow myself to spend that much each week :/

    We don't do allowances but I'd think it would cover treats/extras... so for me, that would be buying coffees, occasional takeaway/cafe lunch, books, music. I could easily do that on $40 a week, I reckon!

    But then there would need to be an amount set aside out of the normal budget for bigger non-essentials such as clothes, concerts, restaurant meals (rare but when we do, we like to pig out lol)

    Its for lunches out with the kids & a play centre if we go. Other wise it all on me, i used to easily blow $600+ in a week.

    We get $20 each a fortnight. That's all that's left after bills and a little in savings.
    It covers lunches or drinks or whatever we want but that's it cos we don't have anymore

    Coffee, iTunes, drinks, meals out, holidays, treats, excursions, something I want - is that what you mean?
